Highly experienced HSEC Manager and Senior Leadership coach required updates to his resume, to reflect a specialised skill set, as well as a corporate bio to secure him roles on key mining projects in Australia and overseas.
A client came to us with two distinct skill-sets within the underground Mining and offshore Oil and Gas industry. So as to not dilute his offering, we created to entirely new resumes to highlight each skill.
In the cover letter and resume, I highlighted his talent for positive reinforcement and ability to both lead and inspire. His applicable operational skills with machinery were congruent as were his work health and safety knowledge. All of these qualities were highlighted in his new cover letter and resume.
With specialist knowledge of how mine approvals work, which includes expansion work and ensuring mine sites are legislatively compliant with environmental policies, and also closure work which ensures that mine sites that are shutting down are done so with particular care to rehabilitate the land to its original state – the client has reached a senior position where his knowledge and experience is much in demand.
Having worked in the same business for the last 12 years this client is ready to move on, with a few different ideas in the wind, but no specific role or even industry concrete in his mind for his career move. Having no resume at all, he needed to start from scratch.
